DROPS OF HEAVEN
When Van Cleef & Arpels introduces a new collection, they do it with a bang. Here, the need-to-know for the latest Bouton d’or collection. A MODERN REIMAGINATION An ode to the maison’s signature Pailette motif created in the late ’30s, Bouton d’or brings about a play on volume and colours that are both technically innovative and visually mesmerising. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS Hundreds of pastilles—even up to a thousand in a necklace—are joined together, while each pastille is adorned with a precious diamond. SHAPESHIFTER In tune with Van Cleef & Arpels’s penchant for versatility, the jewel’s discretely mobile pastiles give way to fluid movements, while exquisitely crafted pendants transform into elegant clips.
